Trivapro Performs in 2016
- In a trial conducted at Loveland Research Farm in Owensboro, Kentucky, where cornfields were infested with Southern rust, Northern corn leaf blight and gray leaf spot, an R1 application of Trivapro fungicide provided an average of 40 more bushels per acre, compared with the following competitive programs:
- Single-pass programs of Stratego® YLD and Priaxor® fungicides
- Two-pass program of Stratego YLD
- Arty Harber, a crop adviser with the McGregor Company in Dayton, Washington, reported a 14.8 bushel-per-acre bump in wheat treated with Trivapro, compared with acres treated with Priaxor + AgriStar® Propi-Star® EC fungicide, when applied between Feekes 3.0 and 5.0.
- Additionally, Midwest soybeans treated with Trivapro showed a 10 to 15 bushel-per-acre increase.
Syngenta debuted Trivapro for use on corn, soybeans and wheat in 2016. This year, Syngenta anticipates registration of the fungicide as a premix, making it available in shuttles, bulk tanks and jugs. Registration on U.S. barley is anticipated in 2017, which will also expand its use this season.
